Help us improve the living conditions of over 200 Cameroonians currently displaced by civil unrest. This project aims to provide basic cooking materials, food, and sanitary products as well as school supplies so that children can return to their studies in the fall.85%Raised: $12,733.41 $15,000.00
This project aims to rehabilitate former child soldiers and teach them woodworking skills so that they can return to and become employed in their communities. In support of the Aprojed pilot project in Northern Congo and in collaboration with SOS Enfants France we are seeking to raise funds to build a center, employ teachers and provide the necessary tools and resources to train students so that they may reintegrate into society and combat the stigma associated with child soldiers.5%Raised: $618.35 $12,000.00
We are all living communally in unprecedented times. The anxiety and fear placed on us by the COVID-19 have forced us to break away from what makes us human: socializing. But what we don’t realize is that we are privileged, we have a home with water and food, but most importantly we are safe. Unfortunately, not everyone has the same level of safety as us. In Montreal, there are a lot of women at risk. Mothers, daughters, sisters, friends who don’t have a regular safe place to reside. Our community is doing its utmost to support them. The woman centre “La rue des Femmes”, has set up a secure environment for homeless women for 26 years. “La rue des Femmes” opens its doors to all women who are down on their luck. Without any judgment, the employees of the foundation are the frontline workers who embrace all the women who disappear in the lonely streets of Montreal. And we, as Montrealers, need to help them.Raised: $345.00 $0.00

Aydin and his Foundation did an amazing job for our organization BUMI. Since 2016, Foundation 64 has given us remarkable worldwide visibility. Thanks to Aydin's visits, expositions, videos and especially photos, Bumi has gained a lot of credibility making us now appear as professional as we really are. In addition to the positive impact on our image, Bumi is also now able to count on a wealth of digital media which has truly helped programs such as child sponsorships, funding requests, project submissions, general communication and many more.
We are very happy to count Foundation 64 as one of our strong partners and we are confident this relationship will only continue to grow. Thank you Aydin and thank you Foundation 64!

Foundation 64 played an integral role in not only documenting the Braincloud Learning project across Southern Thailand but also provided materials for research and marketing purposes. Aydin Matlabi retuned several times on behalf of Foundation 64 across a two-year period to carry out this project and remained dedicated to his work throughout. The photographs and materials that resulted from our partnership were high quality and allowed Braincloud Learning to move forward with our initiative to grow and remain competitive in our field.

I have been working with formerly abducted young mothers in Northern Uganda to create a new model for reintegration. Aydin has followed my PhD project since the onset in 2014 and has always been keenly interested in how the project evolved, the lessons learned and the outcomes. He has provided important insights into this project which I have incorporated into my dissertation. Aydin on behalf of Foundation 64 travelled to Northern Uganda to meet and interview the women and learn how we could collectively create a sustainable project for these women. His compassion, expertise and commitment to these women and all his projects is truly impressive.

Aydin Matlabi undertook the enormous task of building a mural artwork by himself, working with acclaimed Montreal artist MissMe, and presented it to us in 2017. We were amazed by the force of the message that was at the heart of the project, and we also loved the multimedia aspects of the creation and the collaboration between the artists. That's why it was a pleasure for us to include the project in the official programming of the 2017 MURAL Festival and to help him fund it through a partnership with World Vision. We never regretted our choice, as Aydin was able to manage all aspects of the production and give this great legacy public art project to the city of Montreal!

Notre rencontre avec Aydin Matlabi et sa foundation 64 c'est concrétisée lors de l'exposition organisée conjointement à Paris avec SOS Enfants au profit des enfants de Bumi à Lubumbashi. C'était le 20 Novembre, journée international des Droits de l'Enfant. Aydin sait mettre son talent au service des enfants dont les droits les plus élémentaires sont bafoués. SOS Enfants et Aydin se retrouvent aujourd'hui sur les mêmes terrains au Congo (lubumbashi, Nord Kivu) aux côtés des orphelins, des enfants des rues, des enfants abandonnés et rejetés de tous, des enfants engagés malgré eux dans les confits armés... Notre complémentarité est grande et ensemble nous pouvons être encore plus efficaces pour offrir à ces enfants les bases qui leur permettront de construire leur propre avenir, un avenir meilleur. Comme dit le proverbe: Seul on va plus vite, ensemble on va plus loin. Et nous espérons aller très loin avec Aydin et la Foundation 64!
